“Now’s the time it’s your big fat chance; time to squeeze into those smarty pants.”
Sketchopedia is an educational sketch comedy about all things that start with the letter A. It’s not science and it’s not entertainment- it’s “Edutainment!” Written by Kimberly Ross and Krissa Woiwod, it’s a journey through history, pop culture and the animal kingdom with singing and dancing. Drawing its inspiration from programs such as “The Electric Company”, “The Muppet Show” and “Baz Luhrman’s Australia”, Sketchopedia takes you on “an encyclopeditious journey through the academonstrative arts” and promises to be “everything to everyone”.
